is out there fending and going after and taking care of the junk insurance industry. obama care is about making the market better. getting rid of junk insurance. there are a lot of americans in the private market that don't have very good insurance. and it doesn't cover very much. and when they get sick, the cost goes up for all of us. this is about reform. it's not about appeasing people when they get upset, when they get a cancellation notice in the mail saying you got lousy insurance. it doesn't meet the standards. go to the federal market. do we need like a health care summit so we can get all the good guys around the table to figure out what the hell to say to the camera? president clinton, drop me an e-mail. tell me what good that interview did when you said that there are three things wrong with obama care. there are people out there who were sitting on every word, wondering who do i believe. do i believe the lines of misinformation? well, is ed lying to me, or what's going on? is there really a junk insurance industry out there? absolutely, there is. and the whole point of this i
. democrats were plus-7, when president obama got elected last year. and they were there. last night, when terry mcauliffe won the governorship. if you get presidential election type turnout in virginia, from here on out in all of their elections, republicans will never win again in that state. look specifically at the african-american turnout. when the republicans won that governorship back in 2009, the black turnout was 16%. when president obama was on the ballot last year, black turnout turned up to 20% of the electorate. last night again, black turnout was 20% of the electorate. african-american voters in virginia turned out. even though it was not a presidential year. even though it was an off-off year. and if african-american voters can turn out like that again in every election in virginia, that is a nightmare for the republican party. so yeah, ken cuccinelli lost, and the republicans lost the governorship. both of those are history-defying, bad news, bad bench marks for the republican party. and who turned out, looks bad for virginia republicans not just for last night's race but f
clinton. given that last week president obama might have preferred to bestow on mr. clinton the medal of freedom of opinion. >> i'm grateful, bill, as well, for the advice and counsel you've offered me on and off the golf course. and most importantly for your life-saving work around the world. >> by all accounts, 42 and 44 are not close. advisers can see the two men don't particularly like each other, and their relationship is purely transactional. as reported in the book "double down," following a round of golf in 2011, designed to break the ice and formalize clinton's role in the re-election effort, president obama told an aide, i like him in doses. clinton's recent comment that the president should allow americans to keep their substandard individual insurance plans was just the most recent example of the big dog running off the leash. in june clinton opined that president obama risked looking like a total fool with his cautious, consensus-seeking approach on syria. during the campaign, clinton praised mitt romney's sterling business career just as team obama was spending millions

natural success. >>> this sunday, a special look at the state of the obama presidency as he struggles now to fix the rollout of his signature health care law. >> we are just going to keep on working at it. we're going to grind it out. >> one year ago this week, president obama beat former massachusetts governor mitt romney in the 2012 election. now the president invokes the name of his defeated gop rival to defend health care reform. in just a moment, governor romney joins me for an exclusive interview. and president obama's approval rating is at an all-time low. obamacare is at a rough start. more u.s. spy revelations have rocked even our closest allies. and did the president consider replacing vice president joe biden with then-secretary of state hillary clinton? that's according to a bombshell in a new book "double down, game changing 2012." bob woodward, katty kay, david axelrod, bill kristol. i'm david gregory in washington. >>> and good sunday morning. the killing of a tsa agent at los angeles international airport is raising questions about the motives of the 23-year-old suspect, a
think it's a deal with the devil when it comes to legislation. president obama gave him the opening. i think he made a huge mistake thursday by caving to the republicans, and giving junk insurance a new life in the affordable care act. it's going to be an extension. i think the president needs to stand firm on this. this is obama care, it's not clinton care. it's not reagan care. it's obama care. own it. he needs to remind everyone that this is the law of the land. we're not turning back. house and senate democrats need to stop worrying about the mid terms, and rally around this law, which is going to save american lives. well, president obama, i think, is giving the republicans an opportunity to get a bunch of bullet points and a narrative that will play all the way to the mid terms. for example, republican congressman fred upton, he's the new hero, proposing a bill on the house that takes the president's, quote, fix one step further. not only would junk insurance be extended, it's a trojan horse, but insurance companies would be allowed to sell new junk policies with things like life

check for the right wing turkey. on this day, this day before thanksgiving, president obama gave america a clear choice. between those who want to help the less fortunate and those who want to make their lives worse. but he began the day with the annual tradition, the pardon of the white house turco. this year the lucky ones were popcorn and caramel. >> the competition was stiff, but we can officially declare that popcorn is the winner. proving -- there you go. proving that even a turkey with a funny name can find a place in politics. and now, before these turcos get away, with the power vested in me, i want to grant popcorn a full reprieve. come on. i want, popcorn, you have a full reprepare from cranberry sauce and stuffing. we wish you well, and we're going to give caramel a break as well. all right? so -- >> the president also struck a serious note. reflecting on the significance of thanksgiving. >> this is the season, not only to be thankful for the incredible blessings that we have but also remember and serve those who are not as fortunate. we give thanks for our friends and family

out in seattle. let me start with the job at hand. if you're president obama and want his presidency to proceed, what's the best way to gain control? get back on the side of americans that want to make life better with a better health care plan, a growing economy with progressive values. you focus on those who want those things opposed to those who like things the way they have been. you get people to choose not on a day to day but the big differences that separate obama from his right wing critics. and you build a team to sell it just as you must build a better team to govern this country starting with the execution of the affordable care act which puts accountability and transparency first. howard fineman is director for "the huffington post" media group and david corn from mother jones. howard, it's great to have you on and an important question. talk about the big picture president obama has been able to speak to the american people and tell a story. explain where we're headed and where we'd like to go and what we're up against and who we're up against. how does he do that starti

and misused the filibuster. but in the age of obama, the republicans have made a mockery of our democracy. they've turned a useful procedure that turned majority rule into a battering ram to deny the results of a presidential election. take a look at these numbers. in all of u.s. history under all previous presidents, a total of 86 presidential nominees have been filibustered. but during the past five years, republicans have blocked 82 of president obama's nominees. that's nearly the same as all previous presidents combined. it's unfair and it's undemocratic. >> in each of these cases it's not been because they opposed the person. that there was some assessment that they were unqualified. that there was some scandal that had been unearthed. this isn't obstruction on substance, on qualifications. it's just to gum up the works. >> it's not about the individual nominees. it's about opposing thes. . this year alone, republicans blocked all three of his nominees to the d.c. circuit court of appeals. they've filibustered mel watt from a major housing job. the first lawmaker to be blocked in 150

in washington. let me start tonight with this. the demolition campaign on anything obama continues its relentless run even today. with protesters out in the streets of washington denying this president's legitimacy. the goal is to erase this president's election and re-election. replacing it with a republican-enforced shutdown. not just on getting health care to the tens of millions lying in emergency rooms today, but on everything on every progressive front. it's not an overstatement to say right now even the very notion of elected self-government is now openly and shamelessly under assault. with the president's enemies now extend is nothing less than expunging the legacy from the history books before it's even written. clarence page is with the chicago tribune. and ron reagan is a former radio talk show host and msnbc contributor. the tea party is waging a water in an effort to nullify the president's existence as an american. tease are some of the highlights from a tea party rally today in washington, d.c. which included activist larry klayman who has accused the president of being

obama builds a legacy of peace. that's causing right wingers to choke. as commander in chief, the president has made it clear that sending troops into harm's way should always be a last resort. that tough diplomacy should always be our first option. for the first time in nearly a decade, iran will freeze. iran has agreed -- inspectors will do the monitoring. in return, the u.s. has agreed to provide iran with relief from sanctions. it could be a first true step towards disarming iran. an advance the president said was made through diplomacy, not tough talk. >> we cannot close the door or diplomacy. we cannot rule out peaceful solutions to the world's problems. we cannot commit ourselves to endless conflict. and tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it's not the right thing for our security. it is not the right thing for our security. >> there's no doubt this is a complicated issue. some members of both parties have voiced concern. but this deal with iran gets to the heart of what type of leader we have in president obama. he won the nobel peace p

obama said he would do something no president has done since 1979, speak directly to the leaders of iran. it became a central issue of the campaign. >> it's hard to see what such a summit with president ahmadinejad would actually gain except an earful of anti-semitic rants and a worldwide audience for a man who denies one holocaust and talks before frenzied crowds about starting another! >> the conservative media machine jumped on the chance to characterize the young senator as weak. >> but we have a candidate who says we'll talk to the state sponsor of hamas, syria's al assad, and we'll speak to them without condition. >> but obama responded by reiterating his intent to do something that the u.s. had all but abandoned, practice diplomacy. >> if george bush and john mccain have a problem with direct diplomacy led by the president of the united states, then they can explain why they have a problem with john f. kennedy, because that's what he did with khrushchev, or ronald reagan, because that's what he did with gorbachev, or richard nixon, because that's what they did with mao. that's the

obama acknowledged that his baby, is sick. he's owned up to the failures of the team which botched the website's launch and last night he owned up to a failure of his own. that people feel betrayed by a promise he made them but couldn't keep. a promise that he could keep their insurance if they liked it. let's listen to the president. >> well, first of all, i meant what i said. and we worked hard to try to make sure that we implemented it properly, but obviously we didn't do a good enough job and i regret that. i am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me. we've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them, and that we're going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position. the facts are that many of the same people that feel betrayed now will be thanking the president later. these are people in so-called junk plans that could bankrupt them. the new plan may cost more than they are used to but ask anyone who has been bankrupted by cancer and couldn't afford treatment
of popcorn granted clemency this afternoon by president obama, part of a long tradition dating back to at least president john f. kennedy. popcorn vied against feathered riv rival caramel in an online poll. don't worry. both gobble to the end of their lives. >> we can officially declare that popcorn is the winner. proving -- there you go. proving that even a turkey with a funny name can find a place in politics. as for caramel, he's sticking around, and he's already busy raising money for his next campaign. >> unfortunately for the commander in chief, this was a brief reprieve from the pressures of the presidency. cautious white house officials are already urging staunch supporters to stay off the website this weekend to help prevent a potential crash from a second rush of users. after the glitchtastic debut october 1st. and the administration today delayed online enrollment by one year, shifting to an offline route instead. but for both the health law's supporters and opponents, it's personal. with each side using the holiday as a vehicle to spread their message. the democratic nat
on "the cycle." >>> we will get to last night's election results shortly. right now president obama is headed to dallas. he plans to thank obama care volunteers trying to he had indicate americans about their option. a quarter of texas residents are uninsured and texas famously declined to accept funding to accept medicaid. today in washington, the white house point person on ensuring the program works, kathleen sebelius was back on the hill. >> users are receiving far fewer error messages and time-outs. and we're now able to process nearly 17,000 reg strants per hour with almost no errors. for millions of americans, delay is not an option. people's lives depend on this. we discussed security as part of the overall operations on a regular basis with the operations team, but no one i would say suggested that the risk outweigh the importance of moving forward. >> let's go right to luke russert in washington. luke, not quite the same fireworks we saw during sebelius's first round of testimony, but what did you make of the oversight there today? >> that's to be expected. the senate is t
there will be another war over obama care. >> these aren't the droids you're looking for. >> and the winner of that war will be the side that tells the truth, and states the facts. >> the winner of the war is going to be the person who tells the truth? say billo, you better tell that to your buddy at 10:00, because he's been lying better than anybody in the business when it comes to health care in this country. you know, last week on this program, i started the segment on this program asking you, who do you trust? who do you trust when it comes to your news? and i told a story about how when i was growing up with walter cronkite, holy smokes, that's the way it was. and "620 minutes" was kind of the same way. boy, have times really changed, huh? question is, who do you trust when it comes to obama care? all the lies and the misinformation have now infiltrated the sunday talking heads. that's right, on sunday, fox news took their misinformation campaign to the next level, with their signature sunday talk show, fox news sunday. heck, hannity could have been anchoring it. chris wallace interviewed two busi
said. it has shown from the beginning that president obama doesn't deserve the decency accorded other american presidents. his enemies have called him an illegal immigrant, a street corner con artist, a fraud, a march yourian candidate brought to this country to undermine all we stand for. well, now dick cheney comes right out and calls him a liar when a right wing back bencher did that's four years ago he was called out for rebuke even by his own party. now what was condemned as historic bad behavior comes snarling out of dick cheney's mouth and nobody says to shut up. we can argue as we do here about the problems implementing the affordable care act. but is this, calling the president a liar, the new language of american politics? or is it a language specially treated for the country's first african-american president? is this president of a lower caste than those elected to the office before. or those on the right even believe he is the legitimate president of the united states. or someone like him could be. at least we know the top republican in the country refuses to condemn the
around the country, and obama care is just not working. this guy is back. darrell issa. iffit not the irs, if it's not benghazi, well, it is obama care. chairman of the house oversite committee, and has done everything in his power to diminish the president, the health care law, everything. so now he's taking his obama care smear campaign on the road. and that is exactly what it is. basically, darrell issa, he doesn't have camouflage on. but believe me, he's on the hunt. the oversight committee is doing a series of field hearings, called obama care implementation. sticker shock of increased premiums for health care coverage. cute, isn't it? it's fair to call this a total traveling circus mess. the hearings, well, they're going to be held in north carolina, georgia, texas and arizona. exactly none of these states have set up a state exchange. and we all know the challenges of states that have not bought into obama care. kind of funny how that works, isn't it? make no mistake. these hearings will not be fair, and they won't be balanced. that's right. they're not going to be balanced. they a
